Timber and Forestry Thermoplastics

The Advantage Of Thermoplastics for the Timber and Forestry Industries

  • Plastics are light weight, especially when compared to metals.
  • Durable and corrosion resistant.
  • Low Friction and Low Wear – increases part life and results in less down time.
  • Cost effective – overall very economical to produce.
  • Self-lubricating properties. This saves costs eliminating the use of lubrication fluids. External lubrication also causes problems with dust and grease build-up.
  • Resistant to environmental decay – will not rot, swell, splinter or degrade.

Forest Application Examples:

  • Linings,
  • Guide profiles,
  • Drive connectors,
  • Slide shoes,
  • Slide bushings,
  • Wear blocks,
  • Wear bars,
  • Bin protectors,
  • Sight glasses and
  • Windows for timber mills,
  • Felling wedges,
  • Log carriers,
  • Chainsaw holders,
  • Cable sheaves,
  • Parts for cable guide brace systems.
